Barbara Oakley

Overview

Do you love or hate math? If you're like most people, you might strongly stand on one side of this question. But what if nobody is 'just bad with numbers?' What if anybody, including you, could learn how to be good at math and science? Well, it turns out that you can improve your arithmetic skills no matter how terrible you think you are. Your mind is not fixed, and you can improve your abilities.

That's where Barbara Oakley comes in, with her book A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If You Flunked Algebra). Oakley went from failing all her classes to becoming an engineering professor. Now, you can discover all the tools you'll need to improve your math and science skills, just like she did.
